10.5.2.24 Date Intrinsic

 
CALL Date(Date)

Date: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Intrinsic groups: vxt.

Description:

Returns Date in the form `dd-mmm-yy', representing the numeric day of the month dd, a three-character abbreviation of the month name mmm and the last two digits of the year yy, e.g. `25-Nov-96'.

This intrinsic is not recommended, due to the year 2000 approaching. Therefore, programs making use of this intrinsic might not be Year 2000 (Y2K) compliant. See section 8.11.9.53 CTime Intrinsic (subroutine), for information on obtaining more digits for the current (or any) date.
